Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda said the “Balik Pinas, Balik Pampanga” programs continues to wait for more overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to take part in the repatriation project.

“Ang Balik Pinas, Balik Pampanga ay patuloy na umaantabay sa mga bumabalik nating mga kabalen galing sa abroad,” he said.

To date, some 1,415 have registered for the program, only a few of whom have tested positive for Covid-19, the governor said.

“Sa 1,415 katao na nagregister sa programa, iilan lang po ang kumpirmadong nahawa sa Covid-19 at agad naman silang gumaling at hindi nakahawa ng kanilang kapamilya,” Pineda said.

“Marami po ang nakabalik sa kanilang pamilya na walang Covid-19 dahil kinuha agad natin sila sa NAIA, pina-swab test, pina-quarantine at pina-uwi lang nang nagnegatibo sila sa virus,” he said.

“Sa Balik Pinas, Balik Pampanga ay naipakita natin ang ating pagpapahalaga at pagmamahal sa mga kabalen natin na nagpupursige sa abroad para mabigyan ng magandang kinabukasan ang kanilang mahal sa buhay,” Pineda said.

The program assists “returning overseas Filipinos” (ROFs) in returning to the province after completing their mandatory quarantine period, according to provincial officials.
